    I feel like my last relationship messed me up emotionally for a while. On one hand, I am wary of losing control of my emotions again. Then again, I really would like to experience a committed long-term relationship. Maybe it is possible to be with someone and not break up?

    Screw Dating

    What happened to the days I was single and could care less? What happened to the days when I was single, didn't care, and men flocked to me ANYWAY?! I don't know. All I know now is that now that I'm single, I feel only half as good without a boyfriend. Since my break up, which...

    A Startling Contrast
